Everyone and their mother is awaiting the release of Platinum Dunes' reimagining of the Nightmare on Elm Street. Whether it's due to their love of the franchise or their desire to see the Michael Bay-lead remake farm fail once again in their redux of a classic horror film, you can rest assured that the horror fans will be lined up for this one. I don't blame them. The "real" burned look of Jackie Earl Haley as Freddy Krueger looks genuinely interesting, and although the trailer made it look like a typical contemporary teen slasher, I have high hopes for this one.

Continuing with the Nightmare goodness, our own Peter Hall recently discussed the upcoming release of the stateside Nightmare on Elm Street Blu-Ray, which is a real treat for those unable to snag the Canadian Blu-Ray, which is apparently out of print and going for an exorbitant amount. For those not fortunate enough to own a Blu-Ray player, or for those who for some reason did not like any of the other four million releases of the film, a new box set is being released containing all the Nightmare films, including Freddy vs. Jason.
